London Capital & Finance Plc (LC&F) is a commercial lender that supports UK companies with funding to grow their businesses.
Since 2012, our successful business model has enabled us to raise money from investors through secured bonds and innovative finance ISAs, and use the proceeds to lend funds on a secured basis.
Unlike some peer-to-peer lending or crowd-funding, qualified and experienced people - rather than computers - are involved in every stage of the loan and investment lifecycle.
This proven business model provides investors with an attractive return on their investment as well as enabling LC&F to meet the funding demands of the UK business community.

The funding lifecycle starts with funds being invested into bonds issued by LC&F and finishes when all interest and principal is returned to bondholders. During the funding lifecycle, we will use the funds raised to make loans to UK businesses that we consider creditworthy and meet our strict lending criteria.
We only lend money to companies that have undergone a strict due diligence process and met our strict lending criteria, have realistic and robust repayment proposals and can provide adequate security for the loan.
Bondholder funds are secured by a charge over the assets of LC&F as well as the assets of all the companies to whom LC&F lends. Global Security Trustees, an independent security trustee has been appointed to hold these securities on trust for all bondholders.
